Throughout the year, we offer a variety of member events, including panels, roundtables, short courses and luncheons.
CITI hosts an annual event where the hosting members invite a table of colleagues and staff to hear from CEOs and industry experts.
Past events have included:
- Father of the Internet - Vinton Cerf
- New CEO Strategies and Challenges, featuring CEOs from J.D. Edwards, Ball Corporation and Qwest Communications
- The Future of Telecom, featuring CEOs from Level 3 Communications, UnitedGlobalCom and AT&T Wireless.
Industry leaders and pioneers join prominent researchers to present workshops dealing with topics of relevance to the business community. Such workshops may deal with first-hand corporate experiences with emerging information technologies; demonstrate these technologies; and explore policy issues related to technology implementation.
Workshops may include best practices, e-business, security, web integration strategies, outsourcing, systems funding and integration, and Internet privacy, to name a few. In a past event, Gary Beach, publisher of CIO magazine, facilitated a member discussion about the state of IT today, the legacy albatross, knowledge management and cutting costs.
Information technology experts from industry and academia address topical issues of interest to our member firms in customized short courses. Participants take away information and skills for immediate use in their organizations.
Short course topics have included “Why Projects Fail,” “IT Maintenance, Repair and Operations – Systems Integration” and “Leading Geeks” by the author of the book Leading Geeks.
